Question What is the latest news/tips for Fedora 10/11?

I ran out of things to chat about on my linux podcast and I could use any inside info/news on Fedora 10 and 11 that I can mention on my blog...

I want to learn more about the new features in Fedora 10 and if they will be improved for 11. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 will be out next year and I am wondering what features from F-10 and 11 will be incorporated.

Will Fedora 10 stand a chance with Ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04?

I am going to base my MAIN OS on CentOS 5.2 but plan to evaluate Fedora 10 and every other Linux Distro as Live CDs rather than full installations.

Which Beginner Fedora Book would be okay to purchase that is still relevant?

I would love help with my Linux Blog, let me know if you like to read it and contribute to it...

I don't think there are many Fedora/Linux books that are worth anything in particular. The "Bible" books are good.

There are, however, good UNIX/Linux books that include version -specific notes. This is a good one: and there are a couple Linux versions of that same book. But they're so close, my instructor told me I didn't even have to buy the UNIX version of that book, and she was right.

I have yet to read an O'Reilly that I could even use...

Most Linux books, like the ones mentioned above, are geared toward students and professionals who need to use Linux in a business environment - so that means servers and network security, getting into the guts of the OS.

I would be leery of books that try to talk about the Linux desktop, (mostly because that's not what Linux is about). Things change on the desktop so much, I wouldn't bother with a book. There is this one, but I've not read it.

There are a lot of features to discuss such as optional ext4 during install, liveusb with encrypted persistent home, Fedora involvement in the XO OLPC program. As mentioned in PTrenholmes post check the Fedora wiki. There are always some "flame wars" mentioned too for a little excitement.
